Mostly known for its V-12-powered grand tourers and the race cars based on them, Aston Martin isn’t the kind of automaker you’d go to in search of a supercar. There is one exception though. In 2009, the Brits launched the One-77, a coupe that was powered by the most powerful, naturally aspirated engine at the time, was loaded with state-of-the-art features, and built in extremely limited numbers. Come 2016 and Aston Martin unveiled its first full-fledged supercar. Called the AM-RB 001, it was developed in collaboration with Red Bull Racing and will hit public roads in 2018. Although the full details on the car aren’t out yet and the preliminary photos show a prototype that will be further revised before the official launch, Aston Martin promises that the AM-RB 001 will be "an unprecedented fusion of form and function" and a vehicle that will be "entirely useable and enjoyable as a road car, but with the capability to perform like no road car before it on a race track."
